Led Zeppelin - Thank You



"Thank You" is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin from their second studio album Led Zeppelin II (1969). It was written by Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, and produced by Page.


"Thank You" signaled a deeper involvement in songwriting by singer Robert Plant: it was the first Led Zeppelin song for which he wrote all the lyrics. According to various Led Zeppelin biographies, this is also the song that made Jimmy Page realise that Plant could now handle writing the majority of the lyrics for the band's songs. Plant wrote the song as a tribute to his then-wife Maureen.





Lyrics


If the sun refused to shine,

I would still be loving you.

When mountains crumble to the sea,

There will still be you and me.


Kind woman, I give you my all.

Kind woman, nothing more.


Little drops of rain

Whisper of the pain.

Tears of love lost in the days gone by.


My love is strong,

With you there is no wrong.

Together we shall go until we die.


My, my, my.


An inspiration's what you are to me.

Inspiration, look, see.


And so today my world—it smiles,

Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,

Thanks to you it will be done,

For you to me are the only one.


Alright, yeah


Happiness: no more be sad,

Happiness: I'm glad.


If the sun refused to shine,

I would still be loving you.

Mountains crumble to the sea,

There will still be you and me.
